Hi there, this is my first post here. Thank you TR for this amazing training tool, I’m just getting the hang of it, and it seems great, specially for the time crunch athletes.
In my setup I have a Elite Direto trainer, with my go-to bike Argon18 gallium pro (just one year old…), I’ve used it 3 times and I’ve notice this problem:
The trainer is biting off the carbon in the interior part of the dropouts.
I notice that because when I got the bike off the trainer it had carbon dust in both dropouts (more in the non-drive side).
Off course it freaked me out like hell, and it’s a bummer since I really start getting the hang of it.
I think it is because the adapter, that acts like end-cap isn’t fixed to the trainer and it allows some movement, with the flex of hitting hard intervals it must move and bits the carbon.
My LBS recommend me to use a spare bike (I have an almost done winter bike that could use, but I prefer to be using the same for all, and would like to give the spare one to my love one so to bike together) .
Has this happen to someone else before? even with any other trainer
The only solution I can think is to put some “Thread seal tape” (teflon) to sit between the dropout and the end-cap to protect it, but doesn’t seem like a long term one…
